Mandolin for sale

Classical Flattop Mandolin #317  $2950 (includes case)

This mandolin is a 4th generation flattop mandolin.  It has a very lightweight top, braced similar to a classical guitar but with carbon fiber reinforcement.  The top is about 30% lighter and gives more volume and improved tone.  It has a stripy Macassar Ebony back and sides and has an exceptionally nice sound, one of the best made so far..  It incorporates all the innovations of the 2nd and 3rd generation as well as this new development.  It has the new headstock design and the new engraved Ebony tailpiece cover that damps the strings behind the bridge and is much easier to change strings than the scallop tailpieces.

Woods are - Red Spruce top, Macassar Ebony back and sides, Mahogany neck, Ivorywood bindings, Macassar Ebony fingerboard (12in radius, 30mm wide at the nut), 13 & 3/4 inch scale length, Schaller GrandTune satin pearl tuners with Ebony knobs and Ebony adjustable Brekke flat top bridge.  It has my new tailpiece with Ebony cover.  Varnish finish.  Price includes a case.

Note:  This mandolin cannot have an internal pickup installed because of the way it is braced.

For my American customers, note that this mandolin does not have any shell inlay.  The fingerboard marker dots are opal, and the headstock inlay is Huon Pine, European Maple and Blackwood wood.  There is no need for a USA import permit and wildlife paperwork nor any Lacey act paperwork.
